Softpedia Editor's Review for Simple Adblock
A browser plugin for IE that will block most advertisments
Written by Bogdan Popa on May 15th, 2013
Simple Adblock is a simple yet powerful Internet Explorer plugin especially developed to automatically block advertisements displayed on the websites you visit.
This browser add-on is incredibly easy to use because it needs absolutely no configuration, which means it's enough to install it, enable it in Microsoft Internet Explorer and that's it.
With a simple icon placed in the IE status bar, Simple Adblock enhances the browsing experience by blocking disturbing advertisements that show up every time you load a webpage.
A fact that's worth mentioning is that while Simple Adblock can pretty much work with the standard settings; however, users can also access an online configuration screen with personalized ad filtering. Thus, the program can be customized with filters personalized for the country you live in, which means it provides enhanced protection for your geographic area and the local websites.
Additionally, users have the power to specify their own filters, which is a bit more difficult, so it is recommendable that beginners stay away from this feature.
On the good side, Simple Adblock is impressively effective, blocking most, if not all, disturbing ads that may appear while browsing the web. On the other hand, there's no option to block a given image or ad, such as a Content Menu entry to set your own filter on the go.
All in all, Simple Adblock is definitely a must have and with a few improvements in some key areas could very well become a top product.
